Our next presentation is Wen Wei Dance and Beijing Modern Dance Company’s Under the Skin, partially choreographed by Wen Wei Wang, pictured above. Did you see his most recent work, the brilliant choreography for Vancouver Opera’s Nixon in China? A lot of Wen Wei’s work references his training in China (here’s an excellent interview with the Globe and Mail’s Paula Citron if missed it the first time around, as did I), but Under the Skin represents his first trip back to his homeland in 20 years, and Beijing Modern Dance Company’s first visit to Vancouver.

Of course, if you’d like to learn more about dance training in China, Speaking of Dance, presented with SFU Woodward’s, takes place March 1 at 7:30pm, and is free!
